top 8 – sites that made my week!

24 Mar

Inspiralist


1. I’m always looking for inspiring websites and the Inspiralist is like a triple chocolate fudge iced cake! Described as directory of creative sources, I love the visuals, but hope the site can expand very quickly. Bonus: Inspirations are sorted by design elements, resources, color, type, etc.

National Geographic's Daily Dozen


2. Who doesn’t love National Geographic? The Daily Dozen a is selection of twelve photos published monthly in their magazine. Grab a little world perspective.

Blackbird Pie


3. Twitter Media developed Blackbird Pie, a professional way to capture specific tweets for blog posts or websites. Please note you’ll need a tweet url, not the whole Twitter account for an isolated screen shot. You’ll be given the html code once you bake it.

Chris Brogan Social Media Etiquette


4. Huge fan of Chris Brogan and The Insider’s Guide to Social Media Etiquette. He touches upon appearance, friending, conversation, disclosure, promoting, content production and how sharing is caring. Simple do’s and don’ts of the Social Media world all in on place for easy reference.

Wirify

Wirify


1. Learn layout skills with Wirify, this nifty tool helps convert websites into wireframes. Super helpful for when you come across a layout you love or to adjust your company’s site. There is a free and paid version.

Things Real People Don't Say About Advertising

Things Real People Don't Say About Advertising


2. Things Real People Don’t Say About Advertising is pretty hilarious, especially if you’ve ever worked in advertising.

Formulists

Formulists


3. Formulists makes my life much easier! It helps sort through the chaos of your twitter followers by creating lists for you. I’ve used the location and keyword sorting features, oh and its free!

Google Recipe Finder

Google Recipe Finder


4. Google Recipes is a new search feature Google just rolled out. Search for any recipe, then narrow down the results by ingredients, calories or cook time. Makes me love Google so much more!

Wordmark.it

Wordmark.it


1. Wordmark.it helps you decided on a font choice. If you’ve ever wanted to compare typefaces side-by-side, this is the website for you! Easy to use and the possibilities are based on the fonts already on your computer. Happy hunting!

Sparked.com

Sparked.com


2. Sparked is a fantastic idea for non-profits and creative people who have a little bit of free time to join forces. Simply select your interests and your skills, then you are given challenges to complete for non-profits. Brilliant!

Parliament of Owls Design

Parliament of Owls Design


3. Parliament of Owls Design, not only to I lovingly admire their name, I also really dig their designs. Based in Brooklyn, they describe their designs as “old-school with a modern twist, stunningly crafted and surprisingly insightful.” I tend to agree with them. Follow them on Twitter!

Absurd Overheard

Absurd Overheard


4. Absurd Overheard is pure genius! I wish I would have thought of this one myself, but I definitely don’t have the mad skills that CMYKaren has. Karen illustrates absurd comments and tweets into some great art. I absolutely love her work and this idea!

6 Jan


1. Save the words is a fun little site about well.. words! The fun part is adopting a word. Mine for today is sinapistic (consisting of mustard). Bonus: registration is simple.


2. Out of Print Clothing brings classic books to life again with awesome tees! I’d love this To Kill A Mockingbird one!


3. Quora, word is spreading fast about this social media site. Ask a question, any question and give answers to questions that have been asked already on topics you’re interested in. I have a feeling this site will take up a lot of my time in the near future.


4. Offerpop debuted this week as a way to engage fans on Facebook and Twitter with unique contests and engagement ideas. If you have fewer than 500 fans or followers, this product is free. Its a great way to get your fans involved in connecting. Continue reading

top 8 – Free Social Media Resources

14 Dec


1. Social Mention gives users a way to research blogs, twitter, mainstream news and video, to name a few, all in one swoop. One of the most powerful free online tools will give users a vast look at mentions across the web. Top keywords, users and sentiment are among some of the useful data this search engine pulls. Definitely worth a look for initial research if you don’t want to spend top dollar on Radian 6.


2. Hootsuite is a social media management system. This is has all the bells and whistles such as scheduling posts for Facebook and Twitter, keyword searches, Google analytics and url shortners (to name a few). This product recently switched to a paid version for users that are more than casually into social media. Bonus: I love its owl mascot!


3. Klout is fast becoming the currency of social media. I’ve heard rumors about Vegas clubs using Klout scores to determine eligibility for entrance. In any case, the data received from this site is greatly useful for gauging your current state in social media from Twitter to Facebook and even LinkedIn. I also enjoy the suggested follows for Twitter because they offer a better description of the tweeters than their Twitter bios do.


4. Netvibes helps users compile as much or as little data as possible into one dashboard. Have all your newsfeeds, social platforms and searches in one place that is completely customizable and free!

Stainboy


1. Tim Burton’s Cadavre Exquis is a story-telling experiment by one of my favorite people in the movie biz. He posted tweet about one of his characters, Stainboy, who is on an adventure. Fans are asked to use a Twitter hashtag, #BurtonStory, to continue the tale.

2. Time’s Best 50 Inventions of 2010 is a great list, and I love lists.

Garden Inventor


3. Garden Inventor is a pretty addicting game, in which you must defend your garden against bugs and insects by building barriers such as cacti and spitting roses. Warning: very addicting!

4. Social Fresh has a great collection of blog posts that I’ve found super helpful and informative about Social Media. I did attend the Social Fresh Charlotte conference earlier this year, which was just as informative. Very appreciative of their information! Continue reading
